WV SNIPER II
John Cole has more on this saga. What strikes me is how little coverage this is getting compared with 1) the DC area shooting spree last year or 2) the recent blackouts in the northeast.
Ultimately, of course, the DC snipers killed more than three people. But the coverage was wall-to-wall by this stage in that saga. And we reached media saturation on the blackouts within a few minutes of the lights going out–and it was still daylight. Clearly, the major media outlets are much more concerned with events that take place in New York, Washington, and Los Angeles with those taking place in the rest of the country, regardless of the actual merit of the stories.
